Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
By: Quakers

2 sticks margarine or butter softened
1 c firmly packed brown sugar
½ c granulated sugar
2 eggs (I use egg beaters)
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp salt (optional, I use it)
3 c Quaker Oats (uncooked) (I added an additional ½ to ¾ c)
1 c raisins (I added an additional ¼ c) (I soaked my raisins in warm water with vanilla extract for 10 minutes)

Heat oven to 350 degrees
Beat together margarine and sugars until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, mix well.
Stir in oats and raisins; mix well.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared (cooking spray works best) cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, remove to wire rack.
